HOW SHE BECAME FAMOUS
On December 1, 1955, Rosa refused to give up her seat to a white man on a city bus. The bus driver called the police and she was arrested. This started the Montgomery Bus Boycott, which was when black people decided to hurt the bus company by not riding. The bus company lost a lot of money and decided then that blacks and whites could sit wherever they wanted on a city bus.
